Presently, to define status of a task, there are only three options available with the user, namely, Not Started, In Progress, Complete.
Provision to user's to create more status-tags will help track the status.
On hold is as valid as not started, in progress or complete. Surely this is a no brainer ?

Another vote for this nearly 5 year old idea - Task lifecycles are more complex than just "waiting", "going", "done". There really should be the ability to have multiple customizable progress labels with customizable icons (include pie charts as a default, along with some icons for waiting, stopped, narwhals, etc.). Depending on the task, there can be creation, assignment, staging, in progress, waiting, stopped, failed, completed, and "bookshelved". I would like to be able to show people what the status of each task is at a glance, so they can see where things are stuck.
Somehow landed here to see if there was an update on adding status (progress) to the drop down. Sadly nothing has been done with this basic request in such a long time.
crikey - this too please.
Mad its not already a feature. So many key mvp features missing from Planner...
Incredible, more than 4 years no reaction !! Please make this available!
Pelase add a functionality to customize the status (add, rename, ...). The only 3 status are not enough to manage a team board

PLEASE !!! This is a bad oversight
Please implement this feature!!!!
Yes, agree this a much required field. Some times tasks can be on hold/blocked and we need a status for that. also tasks can be deferred or cancelled too.

Really unfortunate that this still hasn't been implemented!
I like Glinda Pasquil's list. I would change proofing to review and add returned (because there isn't an option for not approved).
Gilda Pasquil commented
I would love to be able to add my own as needed, but these are ones I'd like to see
- Not Started (Plan)
- In Progress (Do)
- On hold (Wait)
- Proofing (Check)
- Authorize (Approve)
- Completed (Done)
Yes, vote up from here also. Fully customizable status codes in addition to the three basic
Or at least have a couple more options - on hold, blocked, etc

Yes please, this makes the tool much more usefull.
(Where can I also make a request for a due-date per check-list item?)
Anthony Ikeda commented
Still waiting for this unless there is another tool to use in Teams?

This is much needed and should be completely customizable.
